Radio Stations

Western parts of Prom Country are within range of most metropolitan Melbourne AM/FM/DAB+ radio stations, but as you travel eastwards, reception for these radio stations may diminish. Hilly areas of Prom Country, especially, have limited ability to receive Melbourne radio stations.

Gippsland-based radio stations can be received very well in most parts of Prom Country.

Such stations include:

  • 100.7 FM ABC Gippsland Local Radio (news, talk, etc.)
  • 96.7 FM ABC Triple J (modern music)
  • 101.5 FM ABC Classic FM (classical music)
  • 95.1 ABC News Radio (news)
  • 531 AM - 3GG (various)
  • 3MFM 88.1 FM (Leongatha) 89.1 FM (Phillip Island) 89.5 FM (Foster) (community news and music)
